Follow the method here:

"How To Properly Build And Break In a Ball Differential and Slipper Clutch"

You can adapt it for 4WD by holding the 2 l/h wheels off the workbench and allowing them to spin whilst the 2 r/h wheels are stationary and vice versa, lets you break in both diffs at the same time.

After this I like to drive the car gently in the street, just run a couple packs through it steadily increasing the throttle openings and checking and readjusting the diffs. It's worth getting a set of street tyres to do this as you'll be rebuilding the diffs again sometime.

Ok guys, I got everything put back together finally . I made a few changes to the car and it's running pretty smooth . I went to 30wt rear and 25wt front shocks . I put red springs up front . And I put the ball diffs in. Wow what a difference .
My steering Akerman rack was upside down . So that's where the crazy amount of bump steer was coming from .
Now if I can understand the adjustments to the ball diffs I'd be golden

Default ball diffs

Ok, I see tebos ball diff break in on you tube . But he's on the rb6 . What's the best way to break in 4wd
diffs? And what's the best way to adjust the diff while it's still in the car? I've been holding the wheels and moving the spur a little to left or right

What's the difference between doing this and just holding the tires in place ? Or am I missing something completely with these ball diffs ?

Should be able to use the same or similar method in the Tebo vid for the wheeler, shouldn't be too much different brake in wise.

Diff adjustments on the wheeler should be pretty easy. On the diff bolt head side (2mm hex wrench size), pull off the tire on that side, pop the camber ball up off, move drive line out of way, and put in the 2mm hex wrench and while holding the opposite side tire, tighten or loosen the diff bolt as desired. I always set the rear the same as the 2wd drive buggy and had the front half to 3/4 turn out from that. It's pretty much opposite from what most of the team guys have been doing. Anyway, that's about it for the adjustments of the diff tightness goes.

Has anyone noticed how close Tebo has the ball stud mounted on the steering rack. Looks like it's been dremeled shorter. I think that's the servo saver arm. Idk

Is there any other bodies that fit the ZX-6 besides the factory one?
